Eriez, a global manufacturer of magnetic lift and separation equipment, recently announced a major expansion to its Wager Road facility, located 15 miles from the company’s world headquarters in Erie, PA. The expansion will support strategic growth initiatives for repair, testing and global research and development activities. The facility, which opened in 2012, is currently 114,000 square feet. The planned expansion will add another 38,000 square feet.
“We plan to break ground later this year and anticipate a 2020 completion date,” said Tim Shuttleworth, president and CEO of Eriez.“ The new space will be dedicated to creating specialized repair, testing, demonstration and R&D areas.
“These new areas will be designed to help us grow and enhance our repair business, facilitate product development, accommodate bigger projects and pilot tests and provide even better testing support for Eriez products,” said Tim Gland, vice president and general manager of Eriez-USA. “This expansion is important to maintaining the success of our North American aftermarket repair business, as it proactively addresses floor space constraints being brought on by rapid growth. The expanded capabilities this will bring to our aftermarket business will allow us to offer additional services and even faster turnaround times.”
